it because he loved the work. he really thought the mission of the united states to help these fragile countries move ahead, start anew, that's what he really loved about libya. from the time that he was working to restore ties with the libyan government to being an envoy to the opposition and helping the rebels on the ground in bengzi, to now becoming the u.s. ambassador to libya, he really was someone that felt it was really important to kind of -- the democratic values and need to build proper institutions and try and have a peaceful stable country. >> we understand that he was really regarded in some ways as a hero to the rebels and the people in benghazi in particular. how did he feel? how comfortable did he feel moving around in libya? >> he felt very comfortable. that's what a lot of people are talking about today that maybe he felt a little too comfortable. chris was someone that felt very at ease in benghazi. he knew the area well. he knew the country well. so he might have not -- he might have felt a little bit more immune than some other people would to his safety because he
. >> the cruel irony here is that the united states is well-regarded in libya. and there's a moderate government in place. and this is clearly the actions of an isolated and very small but very vicious terrorist group. and so we've got to protect ourselves from those groups. and we've got to go after them. >> reporter: and, wolf, as i said, we're expecting momentarily a briefing background here at the state department. there are a lot of details. everyone that we talk to says that it was a very, very complex almost chaotic situation. fighting on the outside. fire on the inside. and so we expect to have more details as we go along. >> and so far we've only been told the names of chris stephens and sean smith. the other two they have not released their names yet, is that right? >> yes. they were security officials. >> not u.s. marines though? >> reporter: no. we understand were not marines. they were security personnel. >> let us know what happens at this background briefing you're about to get. and you'll update our viewers. standby for that. jill dougherty. let's go to nic robertson now in londo
there simply as a diversion. four americans died including the united states ambassador to libya chris stevens. our foreign affairs correspondent, jill dougherty, has been working her sources to get a better idea on exactly what happened. our senior international correspondent nic robertson is monitoring the search for who's responsible. and our pentagon correspondent chris lawrence is keeping tabs on the u.s. military's response to what's going on as well. let's go to jill first. she's watching what's going on. jill, what's the latest over at the state department beyond the heartbreak of a top u.s. diplomat, three others killed? >> right, wolf. just in a few minutes we're expecting an update, a briefing on background by senior officials here at the state department. but for now this is what we know based on the conversations and what we are hearing from u.s. officials. tuesday night at the u.s. consulate in benghazi, a complex and highly dangerous situation. outside an anti-american protest. then a group of heavily armed militants, approximately two dozen of them, launched an attack firing ro
>> today we mourn for more americans that represent the best of the united states of america. we will not waiver in our commitment to see that justice is done for this terrible act and make no mistake, justice will be done. >> this is on the heels of romney's slamming the president's response which became a fierce back and forth between the two campaigns. and mitt romney appeared in florida, launching a preemptive attack on the obama administration. >> the first response of the united states must be outrage of the breach of the sovereignty of our nation. an apology for american values is never the right course. as i watched over the passed 3 1/2 years, the president has had some successes and failures, and it's a hit or miss approach, but not based upon sound foreign policy. >> here is the statement released just before midnight that kicked off the campaign bickering. romney saying it's disgraceful that obama's administration's first response was not to condemn the attack but to sympathize with those that waged attacks. >> hillary clinton expressing our profound sadness over the
are reaction to a little-known amateur movie produced in the united states which ridiculed the prophet mohammed. it gained attention because an obscure florida pastor began promoting it, the same man who triggered deadly riots in afghanistan when he threatened to burn the koran. we want to go straight to cairo where we find nbc chief foreign correspondent, richard engel. richard, fill us in a little more this morning. >> reporter: good morning. a libyan source has told nbc news that the u.s. ambassador who was visiting the consulate was killed along with three others. not sure of the nationality of those three others. the u.s. state department has not confirmed this, but this has been told to us by a senior security source in libya. we've been also told that the libyan prime minister and the libyan president will both be speaking today about this subject, offering their condolences to the united states and to the family of the fallen ambassador. and this is according to the report. we were told that when gunmen and a mob stormed the consulate building, they first attacked it with rpgs, then the
right now after the killing of the united states ambassador in libya. so how dangerous is it now for americans abroad? also, as the u.s. moves to hunt down the killers, libyan authorities make at least one arrest. but was it a mob attack or something much more ominous? >>> and mitt romney's taking heat even from some republicans for his harsh criticism of president obama's foreign policy. is he ready to dial back or double down again? i'm wolf blitzer. you're in "the situation room." >>> u.s. warships are moving toward libya today as president obama vows that no act of terror will go unpunished. his words. but in the grim aftermath of the u.s. consulate attack in libya which left the u.s. ambassador and three other americans dead, there are still serious questions as to which group was responsible. meantime, violent protests sparked by an anti-islamic film spreading across the muslim world today. in cairo, crowds have again gathered outside the u.s. embassy right now. they've been throwing rocks and fire bombs as police answer with tear gas. in yemen, police open fire to disperse
the mourners as the bodies of the u.s. ambassador and others killed in libya return to the united states. and mitt romney ramps up his criticism of the president again as the latest polls show him falling behind in several crucial states. i'm wolf blitzer. you're in "the situation room." >>> but we begin with these live pictures. look at this. this is tahrir square in cairo. these are live pictures coming in not far from the united states embassy. once again, the protests escalating even as we speak. earlier in the day it had been relatively -- keyword, relatively, quiet. now seems to be escalating for some reason. our own ben wedeman is on the ground for us. we're going to be going to him shortly. at the same time as these scenes are unfolding, there also have been frightening scenes of violence and hatred directed at the united states and others around the region. it's spreading. and u.s. officials are very worried. sources tell me they're especially concerned about today's penetration of the united states embassy in tunisia and the reports that the american school was actually burned.
amox those ready to pull the plug? >> you always have to ask yourself, is the united states and the national security better if we're gone completely or have a sphere of influence there? i do believe it ought to be leverage as we move forward and we have to get some commitments by this government that they're going to do more in sinai, less to provoke israel and make sure our u.s. embassies are protected fully by the egyptian government. it's unconscionable this could happen on their watch. so it needs to be a point of discussion. we need to be careful about starting to pull out of places that we don't understand the changes that are happening and we don't understand the intelligence and military roles yet and what this muslim brotherhood is trying to do. we should walk into that decision, not run into it. >> speaking of israel, what do you make of this decision the white house telling the israeli government, prime minister netanyahu coming to the united states that the president won't be able to meet with him because of scheduling conflicts. this comes at a time of tension
, a celebrity of the united states instead of the president. >> the president's decision not to meet with the prime minister of israel when the prime minister is here for the united nations session i think is a mistake, and it sends a message throughout the middle east that somehow we distanced ourselves from our friends. i think the exact opposite approach is what's necessary. >> what do you make of the republican view that the president has no time for prime minister netanyahu but time for "the view"? >> prime minister netanyahu is not in new york in the days the president is in new york. the president's not in new york on the days whe prime minister netanyahu will be in new york. the president just recently had a conversation with prime minister netanyahu that lasted more than an hour, i believe, and that was just one in countless conversations that they've had. >> you say that he's got schedules, that foreign leaders have schedules, but the president has blocked out time to appear on "the view" on tuesday. so he has time for whoopi goldberg but he doesn't have time for world lead
.c. landmark infested with algae. we want to welcome our viewers from the united states and the world. i'm wolf blitzer and you're in "the situation room." certainly a critical voting block. military voters out there, both president obama and mitt romney, they are aggressively kourting them. jim acosta is traveling with a governor romney and he has a lot going on right now, jim? >> that's right, wolf. and mitt romney is out to make the case that the best defense is a better economy. >> in battle ground virginia both president obama and mitt romney pulled out the heavy artillery. romney slammed the president for the defense cuts coming at the end of the year. >> it is still a troubled and dangerous world and the idea of cutting our military commitment by a trillion over this decade is unthinkable. and devastating. and when i become president of the united states, we will stop it. i will not cut our commitment to our military. >> the president once again blasted romney's hidden camera comments on the 47% of americans he dubbed victims of government dependence. >> i don't think we can get very far
and conducted throughout much of the muslim world today. in indonesia, the united states forced to close all diplomatic areas. shouts of death to america filling the air. coffins draped and american flags were burned. in malaysia, u.s. citizens told to stay away from the american embassy. this development tonight. the libyan government admitted they will be of little help in the search for the killers of ambassador chris stevens. a surprised expression of empathy and comprehension from president obama who said he understands why the muslim world has erupted in the demonstrations marked by all out american hatred. >> the natural protest that are because of the video were used as an excuse by extremists to see if they can also directly harm u.s. interests. lou: also surprising president obama declining to cease the opportunity to champion the americans right to free speech or address the relationship between the united states and the muslim world. we take all of that up here tonight with former u.s. ambassador to the united nations john bolton and robert maginnis and douglas holtz-eakin joins
of the united states, we will stop it. i will not cut our commitment to our military. >> the president once again blasted romney's hidden camera comments on the 47% of americans he dubbed victims of government dependence. >> i don't think we can get very far with heed lookers who write-off half the nation as a bunch of victims who never take responsibility for their own lives. >> 47% people of the people -- >> the obama campaign turned romney's remarks into a devastating new ad playing the words under the faces of families and veterans. >> and they will vote for this president no matter what. so my job is not worry about those people. they should take personal responsibility. >> reporter: romney who has courted veterans two days in a row. he's seizing on new economic data. from 1.7% to 1.3. >> this is not just one quarter. this has been going on now for years. china is growing much faster than we, russia is growing faster than we. our economy needs to be reinvigorated. >> reporter: the labor department announced it undercounted nearly 400,000 jobs in 2011. meaning that 4.4 million jobs have
interests. and two united states officials now tell the associated press that an air strike has killed the group's second in command. the yemenis say it appears a u.s. drone fired the missile that killed him. american officials have not confirmed it openly but u.s. forces have previously droned suspects in yemen. the target in this latest strike, a saudi national who fought in afghanistan and did six years at guantanamo bay. that stent in gitmo made him a rock star to his buddies we are told. a yemeni government official earlier told fox news officials have recovered d.n.a. from the site and analyzing it now to confirm that he is dead. the yemenis perhaps a little cautious because previous reports of his death later turned out to be inaccurate. stool was not in session today for some 400,000 students in chicago. after the city's public school teachers went on strike for the first time in more than two decades. [chanting] members of the chicago teachers union picketing across the city including outside cellular field on the south side after teachers and city officials missed last night'
, that the united states government had absolutely nothing to do with this video. to us, to me personally, this video is disgusting and reprehensible. it appears to have a deeply cynical purpose, to denigrate a great religion and to provoke rage. >> the film was initially to have thought to have provoked the attack on benghazi, libya, tuesday. ambassador chris stevens, former navy s.e.a.l.s chris woods and glen doherty were killed in that attack along with sean smith. not long after the attack reports surfaced that it might have been the premeditated work of a radical islamic group retaliating for an american drone strike which had killed an al qaeda command leader. libyan officials said they had taken four men into custody in connection with the attack. they also said they thought the attack was meant to drive a wedge between americans and libyans. this may be true. but even with all that has happened in libya, the bigger challenge for the obama administration may be with what's taking place in egypt. where even before the attack on the u.s. consulate in libya protestors stormed the emba
the president strongly defend one of the united states' deadliest and most effective weapons against would-be terrorists. and in a cnn exclusive, the brother of al qaeda's top leader now says there is a way to reconciliation and peace. i'm wolf blitzer. you're in "the situation room"." >>> all that coming up. we begin with a very public and new escalation of some tension between president obama and prime minister benjamin netanyahu. israeli sources tell me the white house at least for now has rejected prime minister netanyahu's request to meet with him later this month to discuss iran's nuclear program. the israelis were told a meeting isn't possible because of the president's schedule, schedule won't permit it even when they offer to have the prime minister come to washington from new york where he'll be addressing the united nations. the white house is pushing back saying the president and prime minister simply won't be in new york at the same time this month to address the u.n. but this is just the tip of the icebe iceberg. in a much bigger disagreement right now over iran's suspected q
, that the first response to the united states must be outrage at the breach of the sovereignty of our nation. and apology for america's values is never the right course. >> democrats even some republicans say mitt romney jumped the gun. so how hard is to manage presidential politics and foreign policy? my guest this afternoon, general wesley clark, former nato commander. also chairman and ceo of wesley k. clark and associates. that is a segment for another day, wesley k. clark and associates. also ran for president in 2004 as a democrat. good afternoon to you, sir. thanks for being here with us. mitt romney has come under fire for his comments in the wake of what's happening in the middle east. what are the challenges, what are the difficulties of taking on an incumbent war time president? >> well, first of all, you don't know what he knows. he has the whole apparatus of the u.s. government feeding him information and you're somewheres else and you're being handled by aides. so you don't have a good -- the smart thing to do is get your facts together before you speak. don't pop off. don't ju
. it was an opportunity taken advantage of extremist groups to demonstrate against the united states and do more than just demonstrate against the united states because they are anti-americans, but also it was an opportunity tofor them to pu pressure on more moderate governments in terms of their spectrum of which they are not a part to put pressure on them to force a war against the united states and undermine the government because it knows the governments are cooperating with the united states because the united states is important for those governments to achieve a better life for the people. the longer this goes the more we find out about it the better the chance that at least some of these instances al qaeda was active as well. i don't know that. my hunch is when people show up to demonstrations with anti tank weapons with rpg's this is not a spontaneous up rising. this is some people who were taking advantage of opportunity to kill americans. >> hadley telling van susteren he thinks the middle east is in a melt down and policies seem to be frozen. >> it is time for the top 5 at 5:00. those are the
mohammed as blas fa mouse. we don't know if this person is base based in the united states and that's to whom the video is attributed as why the attacks were made on american properties abroad. we don't know if there were more complex reasons. this is not the first time that perceived criticism of islam has been reacted to violently in the muslim world. a florida pastor promoted what he was calling "burn a koran day." that spurred days of protests in afghanistan killing nine people there. in 2005 it was cartoons depi depicting the prophet mohammed. and u.s. service members accidentally burned copies of the koran in order to dispose of them. it sparked riots throughout afghanistan killing 30 people overall. but again, breaking news at this hour. a day of violent protests in libya and egypt. the american consulate and the american embassy in egypt. and reports still unconfirmed at this time that one american may have been killed at that consulate attack. this is an evolving story. we're still trying to get confirmation, but we'll update you as we learn more. that's tonight's breaking

states citizens should not be denied by the united states. the issue are they putting roadblocks to get more voter suppression to, to make the process more difficult? if there was supposed to be a period of public comment, why didn't the secretary of state do that? >> heather: is that the issue to have the right to vote? >> here the voter suppression that i'm concerned with. i'm concerned about the suppression of my vote and your vote, of every single voted that is legitimate vote is being tampered down by illegal votes. there are thousands being cast all the the time and it doesn't take that many illegal votes to sway an election. >> i love you dearly but the fact there are thousands and thousands of illegal votes is absolutely non-proven. >> heather: that is not. have you not seen our series right here on fox done by our own eric shawn weekly talking about the issue. >> i don't mean to intererupted but in michigan there is a study that has proven there was 1400 dead people that voted and hundred illegal felons that voted in the last few elections in michigan alone. voters in florida t
's a crude film. they know it has nothing to do with the united states government. it is an excuse. one intelligence person told me, if you scratch the surface, and if you gave every street vendor from street vendor to prime minister in that region a chance to throw a rock at the u.s. embassy, they would. so this is their excuse. >> look at what's happening in afghanistan 11 years later. >> and look what's happening in afghanistan. and is it just me? willie, is it just me, or is it -- we have the grave concern about the tragedy that happened to the ambassador and our people that have served so proudly for, you know, for the state department who were killed. and yet this weekend, more u.s. troops in afghanistan gunned down by our supposed allies. this happens every day. this happens every day. and yes, our u.s. ambassador being killed is just absolutely horrific. but every single day, young american men and women are gunned down in afghanistan. >> 51 of them this year on insider attacks. 51 nato troops including many americans this year. >> nobody's talking about it. >> to your point exa
be about a year and that the united states and israel and the world community would know if and when iran makes that turn. another thing they agree on, it can't be just a policy of containing iran, allowing them to go nuclear, but keeping them contained much like the old cold war as the west did with the soviet union. but prime minister netanyahu wants a more forthright stance publicly from the united states in terms of that red line. setting forth, delineating a clear deadline, clear red line of how far iran can or cannot go in developing those nuclear weapons. here's a little bit more of what he told david gregory. >> is israel closer to taking action into its own hands? >> we always reserve the right to act. but i think that if we are able to coordinate together a common position, we increase the chances that neither one of us will have to act. >> he wants more coordination with the united states in taking a stronger stand against iran. meanwhile ambassador rice says iran is growing more isolated under the policies that are now in place absent any military action. >> iran is more isola
on as people say, look, we're going up against the awesome power and the united states is a global power, but we will defend the honor of islam, defend the honor of the prophet. people sort of feel that this is protesting, not because they want to threaten american lives because they feel under assault. their red lines for what's acceptable speech are different from ours. i really don't see anything that is sort of different kind of anti-americanism. i don't see anything that's a different kind of violence. this feels to me like the kinds of things we have periodically seen throughout the middle east, often about an offense against islam which brings people out into the streets and then people go back into their homes. >> let's talk about foreign policy for a minute. this is what the president said in a recent interview. okay, so we don't have the sound, with you -- but he was asked in an interview with telemundo if egypt was an ally, and he said they are not an ally but they are not an enemy. is the response more about the attackers or the responses from the government, especially moham
with an incumbent president of the united states. i've got a very effective campaign that's doing a very good job. but not everything i say is elegant, and i want to make it very clear, i want to help 100% of the american people. >> all right. just because i have no discipline, richard wolffe, take 20 seconds to double down on those comments. your response. >> well, you're not tied if you're at least five points down in ohio. you can't win if you're that far down in ohio. both candidates, let's face it, the president and mitt romney, have made more than their fair share of mistakes here. the difference here is that mitt romney's mistakes are of his own making, by and large. there aren't any more feet that he can shoot himself in. and the problem is that the tax situation, his comments have come from him, and the president can argue, well, you know, you can disagree with all of my approaches, but there were other things at play in the economic crisis that led to the unemployment we've got. that's the difference we're at right now. >> sam stein, it seems he sort of blamed himself for it and said it
as with the parliament there. he will be out of office next year. the united states government was right not to show up in the general assembly. at least 12 others countries boycotted the event. that's a little unusual at the united nations but he deserves it because he doesn't ever say anything useful and given our strong support for israel in particular, we had to make a statement today, the obama administration did make a statement, we're not going to listen to him anymore. >> do you think that the administration made a mistake in having the president really not in action here? this is the first time, really unprecedented for him to have no bilateral meetings not with just our closest aallies, but morsi is here, this is a pivotal moment with egypt, he spoke to the united nations, all these meetings held by hillary clinton and not by the president of the united states. jon stewart interviewing king abdullah of jordan last night and posing that question. >> you were at the u.n. today. does anyone -- is there any discussion amongst world leaders about the american president not being available for face

cases, our interests are actually mutual with the united states and iran, so i think it is an important country without -- i think they've had a problem for many, many years with the west. particularly with the united states. where they believe, whether it's true or not, but they believe that the u.s. is out to get them. out to destroy the regime and overthrow the regime. even this recent delisting of the opposition group that was in iraq, they claim is another example of the u.s. only interested in changing the regime. we have many, many issues between the u.s. and iran over the 30 years, the nuclear age has gotten to the point now where we have harsh, harsh sanctions hurting the people, the economy, everyone. probably not the regime so much. >> not as tough as they should, at least from our reporting. if you were really trying to shut things down. >> well, they're not that lenient. i think people find a way to get around. >> leaky. >> sorry. but i think that right now, with these sanctions, iran would like to come kind of f agreement with the west, but they want sanctions lifted, or a
's why i'm running for a second term as president of the united states. now, hold on a second. i want you to know, though, because some of you may not have been paying attention at the convention because you were still thinking about michelle and how good she was. [ cheers ] or maybe you're still talking about president clinton and how he broke it down. well, i want everybody to be clear. the path i'm offering isn't quick or easy. it's going to take more than a few years. to deal with all the challenges that we face. but let me tell you something, when i hear the other se talking about how the nation's in decline, i tell them, you must not be getting out much because this is america. and we've still got the best workers in the world and the best entrepreneurs in the world and the best scientists and researchers in the world, and the best colleges and universities in the world. and there's not a country on earth that wouldn't trade places with us right now. so i'm confident our problems can be solved. our challenges will be met. the path i offer is harder, but it leads to a better place. b
